Despite various efforts by medical professionals and cooperation of citizens, the Covid-19 cases continue to increase across the country and according to reports, refusal to get Vaccinated could create a new surge.
But the question remains; why are we making a deal out of the shots?
Dr. Fauci had warned early this week that a “dangerous” new COVID-19 surge could hit the United States from the upcoming holiday season unless the we do something.
Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, while on CNN’s “State of the Union” stated that people need to get vaccinated in order to avoid a winter surge.
He said; “We still have about 60 million people in this country who are eligible to be vaccinated who have not been, and that results in the dynamic of virus in the community that not only is dangerous and makes people who are unvaccinated vulnerable, but it also spills over into the vaccinated people.”
“We have a lot of virus circulating around. You can’t walk away from the data, and the data show that the cases are starting to go up, which is not unexpected when you get into a winter season. People start to go indoors more and we know that immunity does wane over time,” he added.
Fauci said the vaccinated people can spread the coronavirus to others. Or they might face breakthrough infections from not getting their COVID-19 vaccine booster shots.
Accordingto the Guardian reports, Dr. Fauci said in an interview at the Reuters Total Health conference last week that COVID-19 could become endemic — a regional sickness that infects people to some degree — if more people get vaccinated.
Dr. Fauci said; “To me, if you want to get to endemic, you have got to get the level of infection so low that it does not have an impact on society, on your life, on your economy,”
“People will still get infected. People might still get hospitalized, but the level would be so low that we don’t think about it all the time and it doesn’t influence what we do.” he added.
Fauci is advising people to get the coronavirus vaccine quickly to avoid more spread during the holiday season. Getting the vaccine could help the U.S. reach the pandemic endgame and bring back normality, but as we have seen so far a lot of people are refusing to take the vaccine, creating a faction of the Vaccinated and unvaccinated.
With what Dr. Fauci is hiding from congress, it remains speculations that something is wrong with the vaccine but please drop your thoughts in the comments.
